Beauty Products That Will Make You Feel And Look Good Nude
Want a bit of confidence to go nude? You’ve dutifully done your lunges, booked your mani, pedi and wax and even swapped out the gummies for a healthy piece of fruit. Now, we’re going to help you take it to the next level… Get ready to feel sexy AF in your own skin.
ELANCYL SLIM DESIGN (R395)
Said to smooth cellulite and firm and hydrate skin, the slim-design formula is synchronised with the body’s biorhythms, so the slimming active ingredients are released at the best time of the day. It contains a caffeine complex, which spikes circulation and temporarily shrinks fat cells for a visible smoothing of the skin. Layer it on, then focus on more important things. Like checking yourself out. Available at Dis-chem.
BIO-OIL TISSUE OIL (R45)
Dull skin, stretch marks, scars – we’ve all got ’em. Apply this oil twice daily, massaging gently in a circular motion until fully absorbed, to get softer, more supple skin. Plus this oil can improve the appearance of pigmentation marks and blemishes. Confidence? Check! Available at Dis-chem.
SKIN689 FIRMING EMULSION FOR UPPER ARMS (R625)
Dare we say toned arms in a bottle? This number contains crocus-bulb extract, which stimulates the skin’s collagen and elastin production, and argan-tree extract, which tightens, firms and defines skin contours, while shea butter and sweet almond oil nourish. Available at Future This.
CLARINS EAU DYNAMISANTE (R870)
This is a treatment fragrance that tones, rejuvenates and leaves the skin moisturised and lightly scented. Just listing the citrus and coriander notes does this perfume a disservice because it’s so much more – a refreshing, re-energising scent that’ll wake you up and cool you down. Available at Clarins.
NUXE MULTI-PURPOSE DRY OIL WITH GOLD SHIMMER (R365)
This multi-usage dry oil gives a golden shimmer to your body, face and hair. It contains a variety of plant oils (including borage, hazel and sweet almond) and vitamin E to nourish in a single swipe. We’re not going to lie – the shimmer will compel you to strip down. Best part? It won’t transfer onto your clothes. Available at Woolworths.
L’OCCITANE ALMOND REFINING CONCENTRATE (R790)
This body lotion efficiently focuses on targeting those areas you usually wanna hide – thighs, butt, tum – as well as the appearance of dimpled-looking skin. How? It contains pressed almond extract and pure caffeine to firm and soften skin. Plus, it’s deliciously fragrant. Available at L’Occitane.
